    Its like they forgot to put the pleats under the dress. I don’t want to see the construction on the outside. So strange.

    • embers618

      That’s what I thought, too. With the contrasting thread on the seaming, it almost looks like she’s wearing it inside-out. I almost wish it were true – it would explain a lot of the ugliness.
      Also, who fitted that bust? Seriously unflattering.

      • kimmeister

        The bodice looks like she’s swimming in it!

  • alyce1213

    Oh boy, is that an ugly dress.

    • drdarke

      Ohh, khaki cargo pants for women!

      Not that I have any room to talk since most of my pants are khakis in a cargo style, but even I know better than to wear them on the Red Carpet….

    • Golfkat

      I was just going to say that this looks like a DIY project. Not good.

  • Imasewsure

    Bland and unflattering. Hair and makeup aren’t helping either

    • MaryMitch

      Yes, the color is awful… no one that pale should wear that color. Not that anyone would look good in that dress. She needs to trim her hair too.

  • Underwear pink, bad fit, and a few ill considered details does not add up to a good look.

    • drdarke

      Wait, @Kiltdntltd – that’s supposed to be pink?!?!?

      Either that’s a butt-ugly shade of pink, or I need to take my iPad in for repairs!

      • eowyn_of_rohan

        It’s like the hue of dead skin cells.

      • Kristin McNamara

        The first one.

        • demidaemon

          I thought it was taupe or some sickly shade of tan. Hearing that it’s pink–well, I think somewhere, a pink crayon is crying.

      • Janet B

        It’s an ugly pink for sure.
        That weird pink color that won’t show through clothes if you are fair skinned.

  • Famke my friend, if you are, in fact NOT batshit crazy, then you need new gays ASAP. Because honey, that is what you are selling. Hard.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      It’s like someone went all Scarlett O’Hara-and-the-drapes on a burlap sack. And then added a cummerbund for good measure.

  • hughman

    She’s insanely tall IRL so I’m thinking the black band should fall lower on her hips and not her waist which would help the fit.

  • porcupie

    This is the most half-arsed dress I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Aurumgirl

    It’s really not that ugly a dress, but it looks terrible on her. She needs something designed to create a waist (since hers is not really there, she has that model’s figure where waist and hips are not that different). And she also needs something in a dramatic colour.

    This dress is just not it.

  • bertkeeter

    Isn’t it a shame CH didn’t have time to “finish” this gown?

  • another_laura

    Wow. Bad dress, really bad hair, and I think she knows it. Go home and start over, darling.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Yea, I was gonna say, for as bad a dress as this is, her hair and attitude are even worse. She looks so uncomfortable- she must know how weird this looks.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    Girl, that’s not your dress or your hair.

    • MilaXX

      She really needs to lose the extensions.

    • Calinda_L

      Literally, that is not her hair.

  • nannypoo

    Stiff and unflattering. The black topstitching is really tacky.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    Aggressively unflattering.

  • Looks like a Butterick pattern gone blah.

    • Bakerlooline

      It looks like that actual pattern, sewn together as some kind of home-ec demo. BAD

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    This dress looks like it could stand up all on its own.

  • toastedink

    I am not a fan :-/

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Famke, that is perhaps the worst color in the entire world for you. Congratulations for finding it. Now slap your stylist and never wear it again.

  • MilaXX

    That waist detail somehow makes her look a little thick in the middle.

  • mjude

    to me the dress looks like its made out of paper.

  • jmorino08

    That’s a whole lotta dress. Too stiff and plain. Like it’s missing the overlay. Meh.

  • oh dear.

  • JasmineAM

    Horrible, unspeakable things are being committed by this dress to her waist.

  • AlisonS

    I feel like I should put her over a roll of toilet paper.

  • Danielle L

    This is seriously unflattering and poorly constructed.

  • elemspbee

    oh my. this is an underdress, right? one that is waaaay toooo big? and the hair. ayo.

  • ballerinawithagun

    What has happened to Carolina Herrera? I believe the last dress that was on TLo had some serious issues also. Her clothing had always been elegant, tasteful and beautifully constructed even if slightly boring, but this is just the opposite.

  • teensmom99

    Is that really Famke Janssen? I thought she looked totally different. And whoever it is, the dress is wearing her.

  • jen

    Oh, girl, no. You are too good for this mess. And stop messing with your face! Botox and fillers should be banned. They never look right.

  • YoungSally

    Belt made me think there was something wrong with the computer screen.

  • Ew, no! She is far too pretty for that mess.

  • decormaven

    Just because one can grow long hair doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. This gal needs a new ‘do and a much better-fitted dress.

  • bingo

    I really like her as a redhead much more.

  • Pennymac

    This looks home sewn….

  • Celandine1

    Famke doll what is going on? You are epically failing in your attempt to pull a “Jolie.” Get some new gays, pretty please?

  • PrunellaV

    That color is horrible on her. She looks ill.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    Her make-up looks OK, like the lip color. The only thing I can say beyond that is “Yikes.” Though initially the black detail vaguely reminded me of slashes from wolverine’s claws.

  • SpillinTea

    Ooooo no chile. She is givin wayyyy too much of her Witch character from “Hansel and Gretel (lawd what a terrible movie)” and not enough Jean Grey. The hair and makeup look darken her features so much she looks evilish. And that dress is a no-maam.

  • Warrior89

    She has such a beautiful, interesting face. And normally I really love her hair, too…but it’s a little untamed here. The dress is yuck.

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    She’s beginning to look like Sandra Bullock and Fran Drescher combined.

  • demidaemon

    Oh, boy, a modified tent. Perfect choice for a movie premiere!

  • Anniebet

    Witchy hair, weird stiff dress, confusing look all around for me.

  • Trisha26

    What an odd gown. With that heavy fabric and applique and top stitching it looks like a student/Project Runway effort.

  • What happened? Did someone lose her real dress? It’s the color of Silly-Putty and two sizes too big for her.

  • ItsDicey

    The weird shape of the waist sort of echoes her scraggly hair. A mess head to toe.

  • Imasewsure

    I think this could work as a shorter dress but not in this color….

  • quiltrx

    I just love her…but this dress has hit a new thing for me–“Focus Fug”.
    When I just glanced, this looked like a kind of pretty pale-pink dress with some sort of interesting jagged-looking (a la Wolverine, no less) black detail at the waist.
    Then I focused my eyes. And got quite sad. This strikes me as being as un-Herrera as the latest stuff we’ve seen is un-Dior.

  • I don’t know if anyone here has ever been in Second Life, let alone tried to create a skirt out of prims, but… this looks like a badly-made prim skirt, or at least badly-fitted.

  • Nimith

    That grimace… she’s about 5 seconds away from going Dark Phoenix on us all.

  • queen b*tch

    I like the concept but not the execution. As a no frills kinda gal, it’s nice to see a simple shape and fabric.

    Are she and Julianna Margulies related? They are the spitting image of eachother

  • Diego!

    She is not Famke… Phoenix Force corrupted her body and she is staring at all of us in the first picture… *scared*
    Honey, you are gorgeous, please do not abuse botox anymore!
    P.S.: Get a new haricut and throw send that ugly dress back!

  • veriance

    She’s so beautiful, but the color is blah and the hair is too long/limp. Makes a girl sad.

  • marlie

    It looks like a bridesmaid’s dress. And the colorworking detail makes her look wide around the hips. Add to that the hair, and she’s one giant mass/mess of black and peachy/beige.

  • MannahattaMamma

    I desperately want to sneak up behind her & put all that hair in a ponytail or a ballerina bun or something. As my mother would say “get your hair off your face darling, so they can see your pretty smile.”

  • macwell

    THe dress is hideous, but also….why does it seem Famke’s face gets…harsher as she gets older? 🙁

  • H2olovngrl

    Did she do a little touching up on her face?
